Welcome aboard ISEA!
From this issue, fAf is delighted to deliver all ISEA members our
digest via email. It landmarks a partnership with one of the world's
most established electronic arts organisations.
The last two years have been particularly exciting at fAftown, we've
grown from strength to strength. fAf has rekindled and forged new
partnerships with various organisations, we've redesigned our site
and improved our coverage of global activities, thanks to dedicated
staff and readers goodwill.
Most importantly, with support from the Australia Council for the
Arts & Queensland University of Technology, we've commissioned
a series of international articles and exhibitions. It is amazing
how a spark of an idea dominoes into a new development, and how forthcoming
people can be (especially since we *are* strangers on the Net).
More good stuff will roll, I'm sure ... so watch this space ;)
